The Library Services Platform (LSP) project is a state funded effort to provide all California community colleges with a shared solution to replace existing Integrated Library Systems at individual colleges. The architecture of this LSP allows for a shared network zone as well as spaces for independent library or institution work. Alma, the staff side of the LSP, promises streamlined workflows and a high degree of integration with Primo, the discovery layer. The network zone allows for shared bibliographic records and significant potentials for resource sharing and more informed collection development.
